The Atomium is a very, very strange building (if you can call it that) built for the World's Fair in Brussels, Belgium in 1958. Visit their website to see a lot of pictures of this most peculiar construction. For a while they were selling aluminum panels removed from the building during its renovation in 2005, but I couldn't get one of those, so I had to settle for this souvenir from the grand opening. I have Atomium-related items listed under iron because it is said to have been based on the crystal structure of iron.
